UnitedFuture has three core themes that our supporters tell us are very important to them and that the party can credibly influence in government.
We use these themes to organise and prioritise policy solutions to achieve our goal of securing a better deal for future generations.
Future-proofing our environment
Practical solutions to mitigate the undeniable effects of a changing climate on our regions, in particular coastal towns and cities, as well as the resulting environmental, economic and social stresses. Sea level rise is happening and extreme weather events will become more frequent. We must improve our resilience.
Guaranteeing a fair economy for all
Recognising the negative economic and social consequences on future generations of a trend towards increasingly polarised wealth ownership. This includes housing affordability and the ability to save, greater levels of homelessness and ever growing numbers of working people struggling to provide a comfortable lifestyle for their families.
Embracing the modern New Zealand
Accepting that the “face” of New Zealand is and will continue to change as our population grows. Understanding and welcoming unfamiliar faces, cultural practices, languages and values is essential to our future success as a trading nation and as a stable and vibrant society.
